Lyrics:

Who's gonna be your man
Who's gonna be your man
Who's gonna kiss your pretty red lips
Who's gonna be your man
Who's gonna shoe your pretty little foot
Who's gonna glove your hand
Who's gonna kiss your pretty red lips
Who's gonna be your man

I look down the railroad track
Just as far as I could see
All I've seen was a little bitty hand
Kept waving after me
Who's gonna be your man
Who's gonna be your man
Who's gonna kiss your pretty red lips darling
Who's gonna be your man

I've been counting every tree
Count every railroad tie
I've been counting on you my pretty baby
To love me till I die
Cause I wants to be your man
I wants to be your man
I wants to kiss your pretty red lips baby
Won't you let me be your man
Don't you weep my own true love
Don't you weep or cry
Each click of the track tells me
I'll be back in the very near by and by
Cause I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna kiss your pretty red lips darling
I'm gonna be your man
